Protocol Activities: 

CLIMATE PROTOCOL - climate data from October to December were collected and submitted at TEAM portal. TERRESTRIAL VERTEBRATES PROTOCOL - Array 2 deployment and retrieval was completed. Images from Array 1 and 2 were processed in DeskTEAM computer program. All data is available. VEGETATION PROTOCOL – the re-measurement of trees and lianas occurred without problems. Data was uploaded in the end of November.

Protocol Problems: 

TERRESTRIAL VERTEBRATES PROTOCOL - We had problems with cameras trap in 2014. We finished Array 2 with NINE cameras trap NOT WORKING. Some of cameras worked just few days in the field, so we lost data.

Schedule Problems: 

We had a small delay to collect vegetation data because of the importation of materials. However, this did not compromise the protocol.

Logistical Problems: 

There were not logistical problems.

Suggestions: 

We need a plan to repair or replace the cameras. I really do not know if it is viable send the cameras to Reconyx because of the bureaucracy and taxes of importation.
